Day 20: Fasting & Praying

1 Timothy 2:1-2, I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

Heavenly Father, You Are The Creator of Heaven and Earth. You Are The God of Every Nation and we stand in need of your blessings. Lord, You know the current state of our nation. You see the evil that is happening in our nation. Heavenly Father, the government of this nation is helpless without You Lord. Our legislators, senators, governors, mayors, are helpless without You Lord. You word says, Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. Without You Oh God, this nation will not be able to stand against its enemies foreign and domestic. So Lord, according to Your word, we humble ourselves and pray, seeking Your face and turning from our wicked ways, that You might speak from heaven, and heal our land. Heavenly Father, we confess our sins. For we are a nation in reproach, and in need of Your help today. We confess and repent of our sins of disobedience, sins of commission and omission, and our lack of devotion to You God. Forgive us for turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to the needy and the oppressed, for allowing prejudice and racism to go without rebuke. We repent for not protecting the helpless, not defending the innocent, not seeking justice for all. Forgive us for remaining silent as children who are a gift from You, we’re allowed to die in the womb, and innocent people in our nation were killed without justice. Forgive us oh Lord for objectifying women, and emasculating men. Forgive us for attempting to neutralize genders, for prioritizing materialism, for idolizing politicians, money, wealth and fame.

Heavenly Father, because You have the power to make all things well, we pray now in Jesus name, that You heal every city, in and around the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. We also pray that You heal the minds of head officials throughout the State of Texas, and bring healing to America, that we be able to unite as a people, a nation under the Lordship of Christ.

Heavenly Father, we take authority in Jesus name, and we rebuke the spirit of anger, hate, jealousy, envy, murder, strife, debate, division, and all institutions of racism in this country. Lord we pray You restore peace in our nation. From the East coast to the West coast. From the southern border to the northern border of the USA, we ask that You send peace in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, because You are The God who sets up kings and princes, we ask that You touch the heart of leaders all across this nation, who are currently in positions of authority. Lord, teach us how to honor authority in our land that You have ordained. Lord, we ask that You send the Moses, the Daniels and Esthers who possess the humility, integrity and character to lead, who are filled with the Holy Spirit, are full of faith, wisdom, and are anointed and appointed for such a time as this. Lord protect them as they fulfill their Kingdom purpose and assignments in the earth. Lord, renew their strength and give them grace that is sufficient for enduring persecution. Lord give them boldness and courage to confront wickedness with a righteousness tenacity, that You may open doors and platforms for them to speak truth to power in Jesus’ name. Give them an unusual level of perseverance that outlasts the stubbornness of wickedness in Jesus’ name. For we decree and declare peace in our cities, in every state, and in our nation in Jesus’ name.

Heavenly Father, You told us to pray for all in authority. Lord, we ask that Your will be done in the life of our leaders, ambassadors and heads of state. We pray that they may live to see and know that You Are King of kings and Lord of lords. And we pray that You bless our current President Joe Biden & Vice President Kamala Harris. Lord bless their families, as well as the decision-makers and counselors surrounding them. Lord reveal that You Are The God of Wisdom. Thank You for protecting Your True Prophets. Heavenly Father, we give You permission to turn the heart of our President, governors, mayors, state legislators, city council members, civic leaders, so Your word is fulfilled and Your Name is glorified throughout our country and around the world in Jesus’ name. Lord we Thank You for interrupting all politics and business as usual so the church might awaken to lost souls You desire to save. For You Are GOD, and there is none beside YOU. Lord we ask that You raise up righteous leaders and place them in positions of authority in government as well as the marketplace in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, send the Deborah’s of our generation in Jesus’ name. Lord send righteous military men and women, righteous police chiefs and law enforcement officers, righteous judges and lawyers in the courtroom, righteous city councilmen and women, righteous mayors and governors, senators and legislators, doctors, principals, educators and others who are called by Your name into the professional workplace in Jesus’ name.

Lord bless our military men and women abroad who serve to protect our righteous causes domestically and in other countries around the world day and night. Lord we ask that You refresh them and give them the grace they need to continue protecting and serving faithfully. Strengthen them so their hearts don’t fail in the face of difficulty, when response times are slow, when there is uncertainty on the battlefield, Lord send Your angels to remind them of Psalm 23, The Lord Is My Shepherd and I Shall Not Want, He Maketh Me to lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside still waters, He restores my soul, He leadeth in paths of righteousness for His name sake. Yeah, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou Art With Me, Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me, Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies, You anoint their heads with oil and cause their cups to run over. Goodness and mercy follows me all the days of my life that I might dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Now Heavenly Father, You said, where sin did abound, grace did much more abound. So Lord, we pray for Your love abides in us and continues to abound in us in Jesus’ name. We ask for an increase and overflow in our love for people in Jesus’ name. We speak love into the atmosphere. We decree and declare brotherly love and acts of kindness shall going viral in this country this year in Jesus’ name. We declare the love of God is so attractive, that tv, talk radio, music entertainment, social media platforms, and all industry headlines shall witness acts of love across our country in Jesus’ name. By faith, we declare a Love Takeover is happening in us, in our homes, in our families, in our cities, in our state, and across this country, and our grand children will know about it. Heavenly Father, pour out Your spirit. Release visions and dreams. Give hope to the hopeless. And shift this country into its next season of hope and blessings, in Jesus’ name. Now Heavenly Father, we bless Your Holy Name. We give You all the glory, and we give You all the honor and praise. For Thine Is The Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, both now and forever. We ask and believe all these things are done in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
